W.H.O. Declares Ebola Outbreak an International Emergency

(CNN) -- Global health experts on Friday declared the Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa an international health emergency that requires a coordinated global approach.


Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are battling the Ebola virus, which has also spread to Nigeria. More than 930 people have died.


"The possible consequences of further international spread are particularly serious in view of the virulence of the virus, the intensive community and health facility transmission patterns, and the weak health systems in the currently affected and most at-risk countries," the World Health Organization said Friday after two days of emergency meetings.


The U.N health agency described it as the worst outbreak in the four-decade history of tracking the disease.
